I always think of potato salad as something you would serve in the summer with BBQ but my momma always made the best and she would make it for the holidays too. This is pretty close to her version.

How to Make Southern Potato Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Put potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Add the 2 teaspoons salt to the water. Boil the potatoes until tender when pierced with a fork but doesn't fall apart. Drain.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the mayo, mustard, sweet pickle relish, chopped onion, boiled eggs, black pepper, and salt to taste. Fold this into the potatoes.
  3. Put into a nice serving bowl. Sprinkle with paprika and stud the top all over the pimento stuffed green olives.
  4. You can serve this right away while it is still warm but I personally like cold potato salad.
  5. Refrigerate.
